The Chandler-based company joins esteemed ranking for its commitment to company culture and community outreach
Chandler, Ariz. (Dec. 14, 2018) – MST Solutions, Arizona’s leading Salesforce CRM and marketing automation consulting partner, was recently named to Phoenix Business Journal’s 2018 Best Places to Work in the small business category, an award that the company has attained for the second year in a row. Honorees were celebrated at an awards luncheon held at the JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort & Spa on December 13, 2018, an event that brought together the Valley’s top companies across a diverse range of industries.
“Our people are our most important asset and we place a tremendous emphasis on providing them a place where their voices are heard, where they can be challenged and grow, and where they can contribute to a deeper purpose,” said Thiru Thangarathinum, founder and CEO of MST Solutions. “Being named a Phoenix Business Journal Best Places to Work is very meaningful to MST and achieving it wouldn’t have been possible without our team’s dedication to our core values and cultural commitments.”
MST Solutions’ core values center on the “Three Cs”: Customers, Colleagues, and Community. As such, the company is committed to not only creating dynamic, long-term relationships with their customers, but also empowering their people to grow personally and professionally as well as serve the community in an impactful way. To that end, the MST Solutions created a leadership development program to support those who demonstrate a growth mindset and provide them a platform for creating community outreach initiatives. A recent example of this is The KIND Project, which was created by one of their employees and has become a company-wide program aimed at helping underserved women earn and retain sustainable employment.
It’s because of MST’s steadfast commitment to the “Three Cs” that they’ve been able to maintain a 95 percent employee retention rate, and why they’ve maintained a 10 percent year-over-year growth rate.
“Part of the reason we’ve managed to preserve our people-first culture is due to our hiring process,” Thangarathinum said. “We make a concerted effort to ensure that our employees are a cultural fit. This means that we hire smart people who not only have high emotional intelligence but are hungry for new challenges. Each of our employees is dedicated to doing their part in building a more just and kind world by investing in our community.”
